With teaching models and course design now at the forefront of education, culturally responsive teaching has become one of the top priorities among higher education institutions. When we teach effectively, both students and faculty feel better and do better. That’s one of the many reasons it is critical to consider the culturally relevant factors of andragogy. Such factors are often left out of best teaching practice and course design. By providing an overview of the cognitive, psychological, social, and cultural attributes of best teaching practices, this CEU workshop will help participants identify and develop culturally inclusive teaching practices.Additionally, this workshop provides a framework for applying best practices. This presentation shares the foundations of culturally responsive teaching practices and models. Lastly, this presentation highlights specific attributes of ethnic cultures and how one can increase the inclusion of various ethnic cultures within our teaching practices.
